I used to go here in 2002 for 7th grade. I made a lot of good friends and I loved going to that school every day. My favorite class was Language arts with Mrs. Layman she was also my math teacher. My favorite book I read in her class was The Watsons Goes To Birmingham and we even got to see the Movie version of the book. Mrs. Layman, if you're reading this You're THE BEST TEACHER I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!

I used to go here. Until 7th grade, when I moved. I miss it so much. It's a very dramatic school, and someone with extreme social anxiety like myself barely could survive. But I wish I could've managed better. I could have had friends. But how can you have friends when you don't even talk? Anyway, It's a good school. I wish I could contact some students there. I miss them.-Kailyn W.
